Members of the Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma are eligible for burial in the Peoria Tribal Cemetery. Non-Indian spouses may be buried alongside tribal member spouses.
Upon the death of a tribal member, the family will need to call the Peoria Tribal Office. If other family members are already interred in the cemetery, every effort will be made to locate an available gravesite nearby. Once the gravesite has been determined, tribal office staff will make contact for digging of the grave.
The family of the deceased is responsible for the costs of digging the grave. There is no other cost to individuals of Peoria descendent for plots in the tribal cemetery.
All plots are designated on a first need, first served basis. The only exception made is when a joint headstone is placed for spouses.
